Casey & Flavio

My husband and I had the privilege of having Kristen O as our officiant, and she was amazing. Our ceremony was not the generic boring wedding ceremony I’ve experienced; it was personable and reflected us as a couple. Kristen, you are amazing! We were so lucky to have you. Thank you so much! Our day was absolutely amazing ♥️♥️ You were fabulous!

Shayla & Daryl

We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to officiate our wedding! Kristen has an amazing energy that shone through from her first introductory email right to the ceremony and beyond. Never a hesitation when I emailed with questions. We FaceTimed with her shortly before the ceremony to go over the details and we just loved her! She spoke with such joy about us during our ceremony. My mother wanted a blessing for our union and Kristen wrote an absolutely beautiful one for us! These guys know what they’re doing and make sure that you get exactly what you want! Our day was perfect and a big part of it was because of Kristen!!

Alicia & Keith

We had a small and intimate wedding ceremony on a mountain top. It was even more than what we dreamed of! The helicopter ride was very smooth and the scenery was stunning. Kristen is a very friendly, kind, and patient person.

Fai & Daniel

Can’t thank our friends enough for recommending Kristen as our officiant and she was super responsive to all our requests and helped put together the perfect ceremony for our small, intimate wedding. Her style and delivery were perfect for engaging everyone and making them feel a part of the ceremony and she managed to cope with all the little ad libs and laughter from me and my bride. Would definitely recommend Kristen; in fact I already did to one of our wedding party getting married next year.

Martin & Yoyo

Our officiant was Kristen and we couldn’t have been more lucky than to be matched up with her. She personalized our ceremony in a way that was unique to us and incorporated all the aspects that we found important. She was calm and reassuring, a great resource for information, and was extremely organized and direct with her instructions (which made us feel more comfortable with something that could have been way more nerve wracking!). Such a pleasure to work with!

Ashley & Patrick

We wanted to write and say thank you so much for being part of OUR day! Honestly, pulling up in a cloud of dust after continuing a search for us (I am SO sorry about the directions!), you were such a delight! Although our parents weren’t there, I felt as though you were a proud mother sending me over the cliff to meet Matt! Many comments of how lovely and thoughtful, excited and appreciative of the work we had put in to create our day, and genuinely in love with what you do were said after you left, that is absolutely what couples should look for when they are seeking someone to marry them! We appreciated your excitement, your sincerity, our instant connection with you, your easy-going nature and the fact that you created a genuine celebration not for us, but WITH us. It was a day we will never forget and we couldn’t stop saying, on the drive home, how perfect everything was…even the timing! You were a beautiful part of our day. Thank you, thank you!

Acacia & Matt

Kristen, officiated our wedding this August & I can only begin to tell you how amazing she is! I had an officiant already booked for our wedding, but when friends of ours got married in June with Kristen, I just knew I had to have her & cancelled our old officiant & booked her immediately! Kristen was amazing from the first email. She is incredibly sweet, prompt with returning emails, her outfits are appropriate & beautiful, & she just absolutely loves her job. Kristen is the first to tell you that she loves love & it is so apparent. Our ceremony was so personalized because Kristen actually cares enough to truly get to know her couples! I have had multiple friends & family members come to me & say how awesome she was also. I would recommend her to anyone!

Marissa & Kristzian

Kristen, is an absolutely phenomenal person. My husband and I really wanted to have a personalized ceremony performed by someone who truly got us – from the moment we met Kristen we knew she was the one! Whether it was talking on the phone or chatting over coffee, Kristen took the time to really get to know us and our story and she quickly became our friend. Furthermore, my husband and I are not too fond of the spotlight, so the wedding ceremony was a source of anxiety for both of us. Kristen easily removed those anxieties for us, not only in the planning process, but on the day of as well. This is a great company with exceptional people and my husband and I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a truly special and personalized ceremony!

Tess & Dillon

Kristen was nothing short of amazing! She came across as a very genuine and lovely person and was extremely attentive to any questions or concerns and in turn she was very informative. In the weeks leading up to our big day, she made sure that everything was dialled in and we were feeling comfortable. The ceremony was an awesome experience; She was able to set the tone for the day and tell our stories in a beautiful and very fun way. We cannot say enough good things about this lovely lady. Thank you!

Madison & Jan

Thank you so much for everything, Kristen!! You were awesome and made us both feel so comfortable on our big day, even though we were shaking with nerves. The ceremony was easier than I thought it would be. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

Morgan & Daren

Kristen was our officiant and she was completely amazing! Her ceremony was beautiful and we had tons of compliments from our family and friends on how great she was. She was an absolute pleasure to get to know and to work with. We had absolute peace of mind that we were looked after for our big day.

Megan & Jonathan

Kristen was amazing! We are so grateful to have had her as our officiant. From the beginning, our first meeting with Kristen, she was prompt, professional and she really loves what she does! Thank you so much for an amazing ceremony and thank you Kristen for all the work and time that you had put into the script and getting to really know us!

Natasha R

Thank you so much Kristen! It was certainly a magical and beautiful day! Couldn’t have pictured it any other way now. We are so happy and excited for what is next. Thank you so much for helping us commit to each other!

Thank you again Kristen, for doing such an amazing job with our ceremony. Everyone told us that it was so clearly a reflection of us and that makes us so happy! We’ve just returned from our honeymoon and have been looking at the footage that our videographer shot of the ceremony—it brings tears of happiness to our eyes!

Eliza and Ryan

Kristen was an incredible officiant to work with right from the get go!

Arranging our first meeting was super easy as she was very flexible with when and where we could meet. When we first sat down with her in person, it was like she was a long lost friend! Both my (now) husband and I couldn’t believe how comfortable we felt inviting Kristen into our relationship.

Over the next few months Kristen was immensely helpful in walking us through how a ceremony comes together. She answered all of our questions and really listened to what we wanted, plus, she ran our rehearsal like a super friendly, super sweet drill sergeant which was EXACTLY what we needed!

The ceremony was completely perfect. We wouldn’t have changed a word. It made both of us laugh and both of us cry and it was just so “us.” We’re still hearing compliments from our guests weeks after the wedding!

We couldn’t have been happier with our experience and will be recommending Kristen to anyone we know getting married in the future!

Nicole & Jan

Our officiant, Kristen, was very approachable and quick to understand how we wanted our ceremony to be. We had a small elopement with just 2 witnesses. On the day of, she made us feel very comfortable, made us laugh, and the ceremony was exactly how we wanted it to be. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Mark & Danai

Kristen! You are so sweet! It was great to work with you and you really made the day so special! Everything turned out just great and we are very happy!

Lauren & Neil

Thank you so much for the lovely ceremony! We feel so fortunate to have had you there to walk us through it and you made it very special for us. It was exactly what we had hoped for, it felt very “us”. It was wonderful to meet you and a pleasure to have you join us in celebration! We will never forget it!

Carla & Cam

Thanks, Kristen! We are really thankful to you for playing such a pivotal role in the whole affair and for dealing with our last minute planning with great forbearance! You’ll be forever part of our memory of this experience. Thanks again.

Samuel & Christine

We feel very blessed to be married by such a genuine and loving person as yourself – thank you for working so hard to make it all perfect for us. It was the most wonderful day of my life so far and I still feel like I am in a dream. Thank you for your blessings in our marriage.

Amanda & Scott

We just wanted to say thank you again! Kristen made our ceremony perfect.

Brittany and Thomas

Thank you so much. It was an amazing day and Kristen made us look so good and organized.

She made the ceremony so spectacular, touching and unique to us. Then was able to add in some humor at our request to keep it light.

We absolutely loved how easy Kristen made the process for us, in fact all of you did – so thank you again.

Laurie + Jeff

Wow what a whirlwind day! Thank you so much for your generosity in being our officiant. You were the perfect person to marry us and we are ever so thankful to have you play such a big part in our union! Thank you so much!!!!!!

We really cannot thank you enough!

Mark & Anita

Me and my now husband come from different countries, cultures and religions. Our parents don’t speak English and we had no translators. Now imagine how difficult it was be to be our officiant.

We met a couple of other officiants, but when we met Kristen, we knew she was the one. She took the time to listen to our story and prepare a very a personalized ceremony and helped us with the vows. She came early and was dressed professionally. It was a great experience.

Orgilsaikhan Byambajav

Thank you Kristen for being part of our wedding! We loved your humor and the overall flow of the ceremony. We had many people come up to us saying how well the ceremony was!

We could not have done this without you! Thank you for all your support. Was so great to meet you and to have you there for our day.

Keeley & Ian

We wanted to thank Kristen for helping to create a truly memorable ceremony for us. We had an awesome day filled with love, laughter, and wonderful memories.

Brittany & Nick

We wanted to thank you so much for officiating our wedding! It was amazing and we received many compliments from our guests on how great the ceremony was! Thank you! It was a very touching ceremony and it would have not been possible without you there with us!

Sean & Iva

Kristen was the perfect officiant for our wedding! She was warm and personable – a great fit for our intimate wedding. My husband and I planned our Vancouver wedding remotely from the US, and Kristen was extremely accommodating. She truly guided us through the entire ceremony planning process. Thank you Kristen for making our day extra special!

Christine Kim

Kristen, we wanted to thank you so much for making our wedding ceremony so meaningful. You made the entire process enjoyable and we have received so many compliments on our fabulous officiant!

Brittany & Nate

One of the reasons why our wedding ceremony was so over the top amazing was because Kristen officiated it! She is one of the kindest and most genuine people I have ever met. Just talk to her and you will see she truly believes in love. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get married. The way she organised our ceremony was truly outstanding and she even suggested things we would have never thought of like our tree planting! Thank you Kristen so much for everything 🙂

Courtney & Anthony

We planned our Vancouver wedding from out of town but that was never a challenge. Our officiant Kristen was always very responsive and happy to answer our questions. Most importantly, our guests and us had a blast during the ceremony! Couldn’t have done it without her!

Thank you so much, Kristen! We received lots of compliments on the ceremony, so that was definitely all you! We were on tip toes when you spoke of our story, all ears!

Finally, I especially enjoined the little banter you and Toby had during the rehearsal, over which hand to use for the exchange of rings. Such a true demonstration of professionalism!

Thank you for everything!

Ruth & Tobias

We so appreciate being able to have our little elopement on such short notice even though it was pouring rain on the day, we braved the weather and so appreciate that our officiant (Kristen) and camera woman (Naomi) did as well for us!

Brittany & Nick

Our wedding was truly an amazing and very romantic experience for us. Just as we had imagined and even more. We appreciated and enjoyed every minute of it 😊 and it will always be in our hearts!

We thank you so much for guiding and supporting us all the way from the beginning with our thoughts and ideas for the ceremony. You were very present and we felt very secure in you leading the ceremony.

We are glad that we met you before the ceremony and got to know you. We are also glad you mingled with Simon and our friends before the ceremony. That meant a lot to us 😊

Thank you so much Kristen! We will always remember you being a part of our very beautiful, important and romantic day. We hope our paths will cross again some day…

Tina & Simon

Thank you so much for the beautiful day Kristen. Brendan and I both could not have been happier with the way everything went. My mom literally won’t stop talking about how nice you were and how you were like a part of the family… Can not thank you enough!

Brendan & Nadine

We decided to meet with Kristen and from the moment we met with her we knew we wanted her to do our ceremony! She was fantastic throughout the entire planning process and always offered her help. She made our ceremony very special and related it to us and our story and there’s nothing we would’ve changed!
